Oh, they know. Or maybe they don't, but I really think most do. Unless God tells them otherwise.
The defendant’s mother, Charlene Washington, told reporters outside the courtroom that she was disappointed in the decision and professed the defendant’s innocence. She said he has told her he knows nothing about the July 7 shooting and that she has gotten confirmation from God.
“He showed me in a dream that he was not the killer,” she said.
The shooting shocked the city because of its brazenness and seeming senselessness. The bartender and artist apparently did not know the occupants of the passing car. According to witnesses, she yelled at the vehicle to slow down because she was afraid for her dog’s safety.
The car stopped, and a passenger fired fatal shots at her in front of her boyfriend and teenage daughter, according to police.
Police allege that Washington, 18, was the shooter and that another man, Pat Maurice Brown, was driving the car. Two other people who were in the vehicle have not been charged.
Last year, Youngpeter cited Washington’s juvenile criminal record in denying a bid for youthful offender status on a receiving stolen property charge. Powell said his client was entitled to a new hearing because the law requires each case to be considered independently.
Charlene Washington urged anyone with information about the shooting to come forward and exonerate her son.
And don't go comparing Trayon to Trayvon.
